Just received my Edgeware and have not worn them yet. Is there something I should do prior to start wearing them? How to care for them? What wax and other things I should use? Etc..I just wanna make sure I take care of the shoes the proper way.

Thanks. If all else fails, hopefully C&J could do a factory recraft on them!  musicboohoo[1].gif

Not sure if they are C&J but they aren't a wingtip - they're a punched captoe derby with a kiltie. Nice colour but I wonder if that kiltie is removeable.

You should use a leather conditioner on them before wearing the first time, and then again every couple of months.  It is important to do this before the first wear because you don't know how long the shoes have been sitting around the shop with the moisture slowly leaving the leather.  Wearing them if the leather is dry may cause fine cracking.

 

Some tips: Don't wear them two days in a row.  Use wooden shoe trees and put them in as soon as you take the shoes off.  Give the shoes a light brush after each wear.  Polish with wax every month or two, but don't put too much on the midfoot where the creases are or the wax will show as fine white lines.  C&J wax is good.  Maybe this sounds like a lot of work for a pair of shoes, but think of it as a ritual to preserve a fine piece of craftsmanship; taking a bit of care will make a huge difference to how the shoes age.

I have gotten to the point where I pretty much do this for every new pair - shell or calf. I typically use Saphir Reno. Results are always good.

I am looking for a Crockett & Jones Northcote boots in brown size UK12 or US 13. Anyone has one for sale or knows where I can get one. Will consider gently worn pair as well.

Thanks,

Love the Snowdon, although I would've preferred that they'd used a hardier leather for the uppers. One day, I'll get a version made in shell although probably via Sargent and not C&J as Sargent's MTO prices are more reasonable...

This is great advice, thank you.

Any specific leather condition I should use? What about other wax than C&J so I dont have to order it and wait?
